An herbaceous perennial plant, red clover grows throughout the world in temperate and woodland climates. Considered an herbal remedy for a number of ailments affecting women, the University of Maryland suggests that red clover be prepared in a variety of ways. Popularly prepared in herbal tea blends, making red clover tea at home allows you to take advantage of its herbal properties and flavor with ease.
Bring 2 cups of water to a rolling boil and then turn off the heat.
Pour the hot water directly over a glass bowl of red clover buds and mint leaves.
Allow the herbs to steep for approximately five minutes.
Strain the resulting greenish-colored liquid over a strainer and cup to filter the botanical materials from the tea.
Add black honey to the herbal tea for taste.
